On further listening to the song, "Tempest", I like it more . I actually find it oddly moving, and don't mind the length as much . I forgot to thank you for the links to the other Titanic songs, I am almost sure that Dylan has that Rabbit Brown one in mind . And the :Nearer My God To Thee" ending on it is indeed great .
The two most interesting uses I know, of the "Nearer My God"/Titanic connection would be . Gavin Bryars work "The Sinking of the Titanic", where he builds his spacy, work around it .
I recommend this fuller one that the one with Eno .

And a very strange, and beautiful anime "Nigh on The Galactic Railroad" (1985).
The hymn is heard as through the water, in a surreal version of the Titanic sinking . Here is part .;feature=related

The "Joey" conection to "Roll On John" , is pretty funny .
